Understanding the Scope of Spinal Cord Damage in America

cord damage in the United States today. Healthcare costs for these injuries
approach $4 billion annually. Spinal cord damage can be extremely severe,
debilitating, and life altering. If you are experiencing severe pain and
difficulties after a spinal cord injury caused by another person's
negligence, turn to The Law Office of Michael R. Loewen for help filing
a claim against the liable parties.
What are the common causes spinal cord injuries?
Car accidents are among the most common causes of spinal cord injuries. Particularly
in cases where the vehicle is struck from behind, a collision can cause
a victim's body to be "whipped" or snapped forward and backward
suddenly. This puts immense strain on the spine. Some relatively mild
cases will result in temporary damage to the muscle and soft tissue. There
are cases, however, where the damage is much more severe and the vertebrae,
discs, and / or joints are impacted. If the actual structure of the spinal
column is disrupted, the damage can be very extensive and even life threatening.
Some major causes of spinal cord injuries, include:
- Swimming pool / diving accidents
- Sports accidents
- Recreational accidents involving snowboarding, skiing, and other activities
- Medical malpractice
- Slip and falls
